Recent posts have been at the expense of Dr. Fault, a control freak swine of a principal I met in my early days of student teaching. How would she defend my accusations? Here's a mock interview.
Interviewer: Namowal said some vicious things about you, Ms. Fault-
Dr. Fault: That's Doctor Fault. Namowal's posts don't surprise me. It's indicative of her immaturity.
Interviewer: Care to tell your side of the story?
Dr. Fault: We get some "Namowals" each year. Unprofessional. Disengaged. The children need someone who can facilitate their education, not a scatterbrained babysitter. Did you know there was a fire drill and her class was over a minute behind in the evacuation? What if it was a real fire?
Interviewer: Actually the real teacher, Mrs. York, was in charge when that happened. Namowal was only observing.
Dr. Fault: (frowns) Mrs. York was just as bad. I had her terminated.
Interviewer: Is it true you interrupted her class to scold her about the roll call error?
Dr. Fault: How can one access student's individual needs when they can't even take roll?
Interviewer: Namowal didn't have trouble at other schools. In fact she became rather well liked.
Dr Fault: Some districts have lower standards. It's a shame really. Disgraceful. Every child deserves a sound education.
Interviewer: Any truth to Namowal's claim that you grabbed a kid by the arm and "yanked him like a kite?"
Dr. Fault: (slaps desk) How dare you suggest such a thing! This interview is over. Security will escort you off the property.
